We are going to Norfolk in February half term. i have never been to that part of the country before so looking for ideas of lovely things to do or places to visit. Will need to entertain boys from 2 - 10, a 16 year old and adults.

whereabouts are you going in Norfolk? Dinosaur park is fabulous, Africa Alive is great, if Bewilderwood is open you have to do that - best place we have ever been.

Hi, whereabouts in Norfolk will you be? The north coast is beautiful, lots of lovely beaches.

It's too flat....creeps me out all that flat.

Lots and lots of people were having a fab time though - so probably just me.

North is gorgeous imo.

We are staying near Wisbech and a nice beach walk should deffo be on the list so recommendations of where to go for that would be great.

Brancaster beach is lovely, and Old Hunstanton (you can park by the shop opposite the hotel on the hill and there's a nice cafe there.) Wells is also nice for a walk and a cafe but watch out the parking expensive. Nice to have a Potter round town too. There's a petting zoo can't remember where but nearish you and they'll have events on. Oh and if it rains the cinema in Kings Lynn is really cheap. And Burnham Market is quite up market but nice to look around. The north Norfolk coast really is lovely you'll have a nice time smile

Loads of nice pubs don't worry about that wink

just thought of a few more we have been to (we have family over there so visit regularly) - Banham Zoo, Pensthorpe, Pettitts, Thrigby Hall & Amazona. Not sure what is open in Feb though TBH - you would need to check

Oh I love Norfolk!! We normally go in august so spend alot of time on the beaches. The bewildered forest sounds great! We've never been but it's always been on our list of things to do just never got round to it. Have a lovely time
